COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American-style muscle gets backed up here with real kiwi horsepower. A long, aromatic list of hops like Centennial, Citra and Simcoe should lead you to expect a massive bitterness and sensory hop presence, and you wouldn’t be far off that expectation at all. One for the hop heads.

Andrus86 (83) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2015
BOTTLE. Hazy orange pour with huge fluffy white head. Faint sweet floral notes on the nose. Very sweet flavours up front mostly your typical citrus but also a touch of mint? Sweet hoppy finish... One of the better NZ pale ales I’ve had. Sourced Pourhouse Dunsborough

nezzapunk (14) - - NOV 25, 2014
bottle, superliquor cromwell NZ. Good nose fruity and distinctive APA. Palate fine pretty understated but clean hoppy citrusy notes. Body and finish maybe a bit lacking as the mid palate not connected well to the finish leaving it a bit too bitter/sharp. But decent drop for a beer at 5.7% alc

wvhoran (379) - Tasmania, - NOV 23, 2014
Bottled. Clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is fruity with peach and citrus along with caramel malt and toffee. The flavour is a reasonably well-balanced mix of juicy fruit and caramel malt. Dry and sticky palate with an average to strong bitterness.

Jado (582) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear honey-amber with a one-finger white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, melon, crusty bread, peach and lemon. Taste is fresh tropical fruit overlaid with a light hop bitterness and a gently sweet malt backbone. Pretty good.

Davros (2066) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours amber with a slowly fading head. Nose shows lychee, peach and nectarine, very fresh and hoppy. Some sweet clean malt too mixing in with spicy and floral hops./ Less fruit as a flavour, more focussed on spicy, floral, resinous and piny hops. The same sweet malt it there to back things up. Nice moderately high carbonation.
